Reyes faces big test on bases Sunday

New York Mets injured shortstop Jose Reyes ran the bases on Friday. He will test the injury Saturday by running in a straight line. If all goes well, he will run the bases again on Sunday. After Sunday’s workout, GM Sandy Alderson, team trainers and doctors will determine the next step for Reyes, who has been out since July 2 with a strained left hamstring.

If all goes well for Reyes on Sunday, manager Terry Collins hinted that the shortstop is likely to be activated shortly thereafter.

Collins said on Friday that he is unsure if Reyes will have to play in a rehab game or not. That will be determined after Sunday’s workout. Reyes is eligible to come off of the disabled list on Monday.

Reyes is hitting .354 and had 42 multi-hit games in the team's first 81 games. For more on Reyes, including quotes from the Mets shortstop himself, click here.
